Art of Conservation, October 18 and Bird Banding, October 19

Art of Conservation, October 18

There's still time to get tickets to the Art of Conservation at the Mystic Arts Center in Mystic. This event supports Avalonia's conservation work.  Won't you please help us continue our work? Tickets are available on-line here. More information about the event is at our recent post, here and in the flyer, below.

You can still volunteer to help by contacting Heather Milardo in the Avalonia office, by email ( or phone message (860-884-3500), to let her know what you can do.

Bird Banding, October 19

After an evening of looking at nature's beauty captured by talented artists, you can see nature at close range with your own eyes, Sunday, October 19.  Please join Avalonia for a bird banding event at the Knox Preserve in Stonington.  Located on Wilcox Rd. off Route 1, we will gather at 8 AM to weigh, measure, and band resident and migrating species.  This is a great opportunity to photograph birds in fine detail without expensive equipment.  You can read about last year's event in our post, here.
